Critic At Large... Ruta Lee

Don't Pity This Town
Posted by Ruta Lee on Dec 30, 2007 - 1:39:17 PM

WEST HOLLYWOODI went to see Town without Pity at The Macha Theater without big expectations”¦ as rock and roll was never “my thing.” Mantovani (mentioned in the show) was more to my liking.

SURPRISE!

This tribute to Gene Pitney (Rock 'N Roll Hall of Famer) and his music is a delicious treat for the ears and eyes”¦ and comfortable like old dance shoes.

In this memorable salute, Richard Hochberg (writer/director) takes us on a thrilling memory ride with four truly sensational performers who can “do it all.”

Will Collyer, Justin Cowden, PJ Griffith, and Joe Settineri are uniquely talented individuals with diverse personalities”¦ each shining in his own light”¦ However, they perform with the precision of the Rockettes in group numbers.

All this”¦ thanks to the clever staging/choreography of Janet Roston who manages to make each number a novel experience.

Music credits go to Steven L. Jones on piano and Michael Thompson on guitar. This duo must have more than two pairs of hands, as they create the power of a symphony orchestra”¦ with some thanks to their sound designer, Matt Volovski.

John Holly (producer/manager) has a gem of a show that could and should play in any venue anywhere in the world. Its appeal is universal.

All it needs is some glitz, flash, dash and this show, like Forever Plaid, can play forever.
